As they say, prevention is always better than cure and in addition to regular brushing and flossing, the best way to avoid gum disease is to visit the hygienist regularly.
Gum disease has been proven to not only cause bad breath and teeth loss but it is linked with heart disease, some forms of cancer and diabetes.
Our hygiene services ensure that your teeth are professionally cleaned, ideally once every three months. We have a range of different services available, our standard clean takes around 20 minutes, but if you require more intense cleaning or if you smoke for instance we can also address this.
When you have had your hygiene visit, your teeth and gums will be free of plaque, and you teeth will be left with that fantastic squeaky clean feeling, your breath will be fresh.
But when you go home its essential that you brush your teeth properly twice per day and ideally floss twice too.
